Absolutely 100% agree on interviewing with aptitude tests. Compassion and care are core values intrinsic to nursing. I am a student nurse in my final year and have complete faith in my own passion for patient centred care. It has always been there, it has not suddenly come to light since this report. There are too many buzz words being thrown around and not enough basic nursing care, the reasons for this are surely not soley under staffing.
